EDFEN Orders 75 MW of Panels from First Solar

EDF Energies Nouvelles (EDFEN) has signed an order for 75 megawatts (MW) of solar panels from First Solar due for delivery in 2009 and 2010. This new order, 25 MW of which will be delivered in 2009 and a further 50 MW in 2010, increases the total volume of panels EDFEN has ordered from First Solar to 367 MW.

This deal between EDFEN and First Solar, which manufactures thin-film solar photovoltaic modules, comes on top of the contracts already signed in July 2007 and early 2008 for 292 MW in capacity due for delivery between year-end 2007 and December 2012.

EDF Energies Nouvelles, which successfully raised €500 million [US $640.13 million] during September 2008 to finance this expansion, has set itself a target of commissioning 500 MW in photovoltaic capacity for its own account by 2012.
